Diá Del Los Santos Innocentes, 28 de diciembre (4/25/2014 Update)
In concordance with the May 2010 Ley de Migracion’s requirements to establish a “Points System” for qualifying foreigners who apply for residency in Mexico, inside sources say INM officials seem to finally be showing some movement on implementing the details of a new “Points System”.
After evaluating the performance of the last 18 months of the Nov. 9, 2012 “new” INM Law and Lineamiento system at INM offices and Consulates, INM in Distrito Federal may now be considering some new principles for approving Residency applications for foreigners who want to live in Mexico. Rumor has it that the proposed new Requisitos include the following options for INM and Consular officials to use when evaluating Residente Temporal and Residente Permanente applicants.
Here are some crude (Google) translations of the rumored hypothetical options for local INM and Consular clerks:
“Sorry, we are denying your application because:
….. a. You have not learned even basic Spanish.
….. b. Mexico is a polite and civilized country: Your past behaviors have been found to be far too rude to qualify you as a resident of Mexico.
….. c. You are far too grumpy to be of benefit to the Mexican society and culture.
….. d. Your loud and pushy behaviors are not welcome in Mexico.
….. e. Your selfish self-centered attitudes have been found to be non-beneficial to Mexico.
….. f. Your repeated references to: “In America, we ….. “, make it clear that you do not sufficiently understand or appreciate Mexico, and are not suited to living in Mexico.
….. f. We have carefully studied your writings and verbal opinions expressed about Mexico, and at this time, we believe you would not be an asset to Mexico. ”
At this point, these are only rumors of how the new “Points System” will be implemented.
